The hardest he has ever swam in his life but got last place, and you think he will do better next time? I'm sorry but that sounds pretty unlikely. I think OP should pick a new sport, like chess or checkers maybe.

That's okay, OP. We can sink together. I used to be so terrible at backstroke that once I was practically vertical in the water and spinning my arms around like a windmill. Eventually everyone else in the race got tired of waiting so my mum came to fish me out.

EDIT: Actually, I just checked a couple of legitimate English language sites, and apparently both are considered correct. They're both the past participle for "swim". So we're all correct.

Hold on there, cowboy. The FML has changed. It used to be "swimming as hard as I had ever swam before", in which case the presence of the verb "had" required the past participle "swum" to form the perfect tense. That's the sentence Doc was referring to.

#40, you are right. As the sentence appears now, "swam" is correct. If "had" had been there, then "swum" would be right. I wish the zods would make a note when a story is edited for spelling or grammar.
